Welcome to lj_policy!

We're glad you're here. This community will be used to gather your opinions about social and community policy.

We understand that there is a lot to absorb and process right now with the creation of LiveJournal, Inc. Since this is a transition for all of us, we want to initiate a dialogue with you, the users. We feel it is very important to hear your concerns before we release any changes to current policies, and we want to start this process right away.

As a starting point, we don't want to just guess what's important to you; we want to hear about it directly from you. Please take a moment to answer the questions below:

1) What is your greatest concern about LiveJournal's current policies?

2) Regarding your primary concern, are you aware of a site that handles that issue in a way that you like?

This is just a starting point to get your initial ideas. We know you have a lot more where these come from, and in the coming days and weeks we will make sure you have a chance to voice your opinions. We look forward to your comments.

Has anyone bothered to realize that all an underage user needs to do to get around the new and so very unimproved security system is to create a new profile with a new and improved birthdate? And no matter how much the new and sure to be already abused flagging system is supposed to be fool proof, you know there a lot of fools on the intarwebs that are going to be making a whole lot of headaches there, and that is not even counting the users who aren't fools, you understand. Good Luck though. I have enjoyed my 5 years with LJ and really had planned on getting a permaccount last time they were offered, but I am one of the many people who did not opt for that in light of the FandomPurge. Now that LJ is again under new management, perhaps that decision will be reversed, as I hope many of the old management's policies will be reviewed and perhaps modified, as the powers that be keep saying that LJ is for LJers and yet pass down decisions that don't work for LJ. I plan to stick by LJ, since I was LJ when LJ was cool and I hope it will be again someday.

And if they don't want to do that, all they have to do is log out. I mean, if you're not signed in and the post is public, You answer a question with your age, and then click on a forced LJ-cut (which is a little obnoxious. The button alone would make someone no longer liable for reading and it makes looking at someone's journal obnoxious when every post has a forced cut that tells you absolutely nothing besides it may contain adult content.) Besides, it's time someone takes the policy of "It's your responsibility, not mine, to parent your children on the internet or, I don't know, make them go outside and play."

I, too, was going to purchase a permanent account until this mess happened. I've since turned off my paid-time renewal. If SUP shows that it actually cares what we think, I'll consider re-upping when my time expires.

I love you.
I remember LJ back when everyone was complaining because ParaJournal disappeared. A lot of good times back then. Now everyone's leaving because of the new updates and such. It's really a shame.
